Wisconsin's politics are so divisive, even 80-something-year-old women are nearly coming to blows these days.

At a Romney campaign event last Friday in Grand Chute, 83-year-old Mary Hoglund hocked a loogie in the face of Romney supporter who looks like she was also born during the Coolidge administration. Hoglund was then escorted out of the event as Republicans serenaded her with chants of "Rom-ney! Rom-ney!"

The altercation took place as state Sen. Alberta Darling, R-River Hills, made remarks during the kickoff event for a tour entitled "Wisconsin Women for Mitt."

From The Blaze:

Wisconsin politics at its finest.
Darling is speaking to the audience when a female protester disrupts the "Wisconsin Women for Mitt" event and tries to ask a question: "Why are you against Planned Parenthood?"

When another woman asks the protester to hold her question, the protester says, "Get out of my face" and spits in hers...

Grand Chute police are reviewing the altercation for potential charges, the Appleton Post-Crescent reports.
Here's the footage:



Looks like these two old ladies still have some unfinished business with each other. It would make for a pretty compelling UFC pay-per-view main event, wouldn't it?

Unacceptable. I mean, I get it: frustrated and feisty 60's era feminist watches moronic sheep work to roll back the very rights she probably helped secure for them in the first place. Still, keep your spittle in your mouth. It is in the first place simply uncivilized and wrong, and in the second place there's NOTHING the Right likes better than to be able to play the victim. "Ooh! She spit on me!  My civil rights! I'm a victim of liberals! Ooh!"

Seriously? At 83 she hasn't learned basic manners yet?

Classy, definitely the right way to get your point across.

 @A1batross The Right likes to play the victim?  Really?  I thought playing the victim is the whole mantra of the Democratic Party: We are victims of our own stupidity and/or laziness, so we need Big Government to take care of us".

 @CinBlueland Says the guy on the same side as kirk the conservative pedophile and kenny the racist. Don't lecture anyone on class until I see you tell kenny the racist to fuck off.  Kirk wrote a long post with his pedophile fantasies and you said nothing.  There are racist comments on almost every story but you say nothing to them.  I can't count the homophobic and sexist comments I see here yet your stupid ass has never said a word about that.  It's because Republicans like you are evil racist sexist homophobic scum that don't give a crap about class unless they can pretend a Dem has really offended them.   This woman is way out of line.  She obviously lost her temper and did something stupid.  Who hasn't done something like that?   I doubt anyone serious will defend this woman.  None of the regular liberal commenters will defend her.    Let's see how much you care about class next time sexism, racism or homophobia pops up on here.
